Days off are hard to come for an All-Star baseball player whose team was in a pennant chase to the final day of the regular season and is now in the playoffs.

Six Rangers players started the final 10 games of the regular season without a day off. That wasn’t anything five of them hadn’t done before, but it was new for Jonah Heim.

Catchers these days just don’t do that.

Heim did. In fact, Game 2 of the American League Division Series this afternoon will be his 17th consecutive start.

“Adrenaline is a powerful drug,” Heim said last week.
